a HUGE thanks to my mom, my sister-in-law Sheila, and my cousin Jessica for all their help!!!! I could not have done any of it without you. They all work for nothing but the fun of going to Bonanza!

I turned in my registration for next year...so, already counting the days for Junk Bonanza 2012!

Junk Bonanza +200th Post Giveaway

My driveway, garage, basement, and dining room are all full of the goodies that will go to Shakopee with me VERY EARLY next Wednesday morning. This will be my third time vending at Junk Bonanza and I am more excited than ever. I feel like the last two years was spent trying to figure out what would sell, how to set up my booth, what to wear, how to attract customesr, how much change to bring, what hotel to stay in, how much I could justify buying and bringing back home....blah, blah, blah. I am defintely more relaxed this year and enjoying it very much!

I will try to post pictures of my treasures over the weekend, but here are some ideas of what you will see in my booth...lots of neutrals, but also some black, robin's egg blue (of course!), light green..chippy furniture, some very fun upcycled stuff (VERY FUN!), some decoupaged items...the little fun stuff like scrabble tiles, dominoes, keys, and other game pieces...and lots more.

AND, the best part of going to Bonanza is picking out prizes for 2 lucky winners! This is my 200th post, so in honor of that I am doing a giveaway on here. I am also going to do a giveaway over on my facebook page (search "The Farmer's Wife").

Requirements: YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER on this blog. Post a comment on here, telling me about your all-time favorite "junk find."  Go on over to Facebook and do the same on my wall. Therefore, you can enter twice!  You must comment by midnight, Tuesday, September 13. Then, I get to go shopping at Bonanza and pick out something fun for the winners!!
